Betting Options and Bonus Features
The gameplay of Gates of Olympus is a very similar experience to the classic Pragmatic title Sweet Bonanza. Both games feature Pragmatic's unique Ante Bet feature, which you can turn on and off at any point.
When activated, your bet is increased by 25% but you’ll access a different mathematical version of the game. In the ante bet version, the number of scatters is greatly increased and your chance to trigger the bonus round is doubled!
Additionally, like Sweet Bonanza, the game takes place on a 6x5 reel grid that possesses both the tumble and Pay Anywhere features.
Tumbling replaces the regular spin with falling symbols. Whenever a winning combination is formed, the symbols disappear, making way for additional symbols to fall from above. These new symbols can further connect additional wins, which will keep coming as long as there is a payline combination.
Paylines in Gates of Olympus are replaced with the Pay Anywhere feature. Instead of forming a string of matching symbols, players can obtain a winning combination by simply landing 8 or more matching symbols anywhere on the reels.
The base game is furthermore enhanced with multiplier symbols. These symbols can land anywhere on the reels and have a random value of 2x to 500x. When landed, these symbols lay dormant until Zeus himself strikes them with his lightning bolt. If during that spin you’ve successfully collected enough symbols for a payline combination, your wins will be multiplied by all the multipliers added together!
During the base game, you can also trigger a special bonus round. The free spins bonus round is triggered by collecting 4, 5, or 6 Zeus scatter symbols. Collecting them will immediately reward you with 3x, 5x, or 100x your bet respectively and you’ll also obtain 15 free spins.
During which, all multiplier symbols are collected and combined in your multiplier meter. Any win you receive will be multiplied by that number and you can win up to 5,000x your stake. You can furthermore extend your free spins by landing 3 Zeus scatters during the bonus game.
For avid bonus hunters, Gates of Olympus offers a bonus buy option. You can activate the free spins round immediately by purchasing it for 100x your current bet.
Some might call this a cheap Sweet Bonanza reskin. I call those people doubters. Doubters and Brians. Don’t be fooled, comrades. Gates of Olympus by Pragmatic Play is an extremally fun game. It’s action-packed, smooth, and extremely volatile. When it pays, it pays well. Extremely well in my case!
